Galileo Services backing on Oregin network
  puce
Oregin is the antechamber of Galileo Services

  puce
Pascal CAMPAGNE, CEO of FDC, founded Oregin (ORganization of European Gnss equipment and service INdustries) in February 1999. Quickly, the organization is the victim of its own success. The organization is fast growing and, given Oregin free membership, its coordination becomes difficult to manage. In 2001, Oregin has more than 50 member companies and the meeting organization becomes too complex.

Mr Alain BORIES, from Thales Group at that time, is the father of Galileo Services initiative and has been its chairman from 2002 to 2005. In 2001, he launches the idea to create a non-profit making organization - funded through annual membership fees - able to provide improved services to members. The idea is immediately adopted by eight Oregin members, the eight Founding members of Galileo Services: Eutelsat, FDC, Hispasat, Indra, Kongsberg Seatex, Septentrio, Telespazio, and Thales. In 2002 Galileo Services is born. Oregin is then transformed into a wide electronic network coordinated by Pascal CAMPAGNE. Oregin and Galileo Services evolve independently until 2009.

In 2009, Galileo Services and Oregin decide to join their forces (see the related press release).
In merging their networks, Galileo Services and Oregin federate the most active and representative players of GNSS industry and research supporting the Galileo and EGNOS Programmes. This union uniquely combines the innovation, flexibility and responsiveness of the smallest enterprises with the strength, stability and reliability of the biggest industries. It covers all the segments of the value chain and covers all application domains.
This federation provides an unrivalled platform for partnership and information exchange between its Members, and offers a powerful support and representativeness to Institutions.

Galileo Services and Oregin network together represent a community of almost 180 companies

Oregin - Introduction
  puce
European Industry is leading the world in many areas of technology. It is capable of the complete range, from chip set design to manufacture, integration and certification of major systems and provision of innovative services. It is consequently supporting the European Union initiative to build all the elements of the European satellite timing and positioning systems, called Galileo & EGNOS. This project is opening a new market for many applications and services in addition to those rapidly expanding for GPS systems.

Because of the wide range of companies spread across Europe interested in markets for Galileo & EGNOS applications, Oregin (ORganization of European Gnss equipment and service INdustries) was formed in February 1999 to provide a medium for information exchange and cross-fertilisation of expertise.

  puce
Oregin's mission is to back up the Galileo & EGNOS Programmes right from the definition phase in order to obtain early operational benefits and standardise products. Oregin provides a point of contact for the European Union, European Commission and Space industry for Galileo user segment related views. It disseminates information from the Galileo & EGNOS projects to the manufacturing industries of Europe that are interested in Galileo & EGNOS but not directly involved.

  puce
Oregin supports the interests of any European industry and research centre regardless of size, and benefits from the vast experience of leading industrial groups combined with the innovative spirit and responsiveness of SMEs.

Oregin is already proving its capabilities in supporting the Galileo & EGNOS programme by:
  • providing expertise at the user segment level in the major European projects,
  • supporting European industry through publicity and lobbying actions aimed at European and National Institutions and within European industry itself,
  • fostering co-operation with non-European industries, creating opportunities in overseas and global markets.
This activity is considered as an essential step towards consolidation of European industry positions in the fast moving globalisation process
